Social protection in Lebanon – Reducing rural poverty and strengthening rural resilience

Resource Type: Infographic
Published: 04/06/2018

Social protection is the set of policies and programmes aimed at preventing or protecting all people against poverty, vulnerability, and social exclusion throughout their lifecycles, particularly the most vulnerable groups. This poster will serve to demonstrate the efforts - and advancements made - in reducing rural poverty and increasing resilience through FAO strategic programmes, such as SP3 and SP5 in recent years. It aims to provide to donors, partners, and policy-makers with the information they need to gain awareness of the impacts of social protection initiatives, and to invest in social protection as a valid pathway out of poverty and hunger. The expected results of this product is an increase awareness of the benefits of social protection initiatives, an increase in visibility of countries' progress in areas pertaining to food insecurity and nutrition and act as springboard to more funding opportunities. This poster will hopefully be part of a series of posters put on display during the FAO Council following a side event in the Sheikh Zayed Centre on 4 June, 2018 called "Scaling-up Social Protection: Achieving Rural Development and Resilience for All - FAO Council Side Event".
